What is speculative fiction?
We use this quote from kboard author William D. Richards to define a big umbrella: an all-encompassing genre created to describe stories of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and other stories that have an element of "What if..." in them. A story in speculative fiction is one that adds an element of the unreal, or asks, what would become of our society if history took a different direction at some important event? Fiction with a little something extra thrown in.
